Annually in the US, Slurpees rake in over $170,000,000 for 7-Eleven stores. July of 2005 marked the 40th anniversary of the Slurpee. Back in the day, the very idea for the drink was stolen from a Dairy Queen selling semi-frozen bottled drinks, probably because of a refrigeration related incident. 7-Eleven put machines capable of recreating this consistency in many of its branches and have sold over 6 million cups of the stuff since the 60s.
